Employee Happiness

The secrets to employee happiness

The CallMiner conversation intelligence platform analyzes employee conversations across all channels to reveal the driver of happiness, satisfaction, and retention.

Customer satisfaction depends on employee happiness

There’s a great deal of truth in the management maxim “happy employees, happy customers.” When customer-facing employees are engaged in their work and satisfied with their job, they are far more likely to deliver a positive experience for customers, leading to greater customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Among the best practices for building workplace happiness, capturing the Voice of the Employee (VoE) is perhaps the most challenging. Traditional methods for gathering employee feedback on job satisfaction rely on surveys and interviews with managers. But these methods can be skewed, as data is typically dominated by the most satisfied and most disgruntled workers. And correlating data from interviews can be painstaking and time-consuming.

CallMiner can help. The CallMiner Eureka conversation intelligence platform provides employee experience software that makes it easy to capture the voice of the employee in voice and text-based conversations workers have with customers, HR, and other departments. With CallMiner, organizations can leverage employee insights to improve satisfaction, engagement, and retention.

What determines employee happiness?

Happy workers tend to be those that have the most positive work experiences. The daily realities of an employee’s work, interactions, feelings, and observations throughout their time at a company form an overall positive or negative experience. By focusing on the quality of the employee experience, companies can take steps to improve the workplace environment and increase employee happiness.

An employee’s happiness with their work will have a significant impact on their performance, and consequently, on the service they provide to customers. A solid work ethic and positive demeanor can quickly become tainted by a lack of enthusiasm for a workplace where qualities like mutual respect and proper communication are in short supply.

To improve employee happiness, companies must first understand the pain points and sources of dissatisfaction with a worker’s job, their training, the technology they use, their physical environment, and the company’s culture. By gathering solicited and unsolicited feedback, companies can identify areas of opportunity to better meet employee needs and expectations.
